Burning the Koran
Pastor Terry Jones of Gainsville, FL has set Sunday, Sept 11 aside as "International Burn a Koran Day." He claims that the purpose of this burning is to bring awareness to the dangers of Islam. I firmly hold that the beliefs of Islam will lead those who hold to those beliefs to an eternity in hell cut off from the presence of the one true God in heaven. Yet, I wholeheartedly agree with Chuck Colson that Pastor Jones's plan is irresponsible and dangerous. I also believe it lacks spiritual discernment. He has not thought through the implications of his actions. Moreover, he will forever lose his opportunity to be an effective witness for the Lord Jesus Christ to Muslims.
